Penticton’s Jerome Moore felt ‘extremely grateful’ after realizing he won more than $92,000 from the Lotto 6/49 draw on Aug. 26.
Moore purchased the ticket from Hart Highway Husky in Prince George while on a work trip. He was at home in Penticton when he saw online that someone had won in the Prince George area.
Smiling to himself, he scanned his ticket with the BCLC Lotto! app, which showed right away he was the winner.
“The rest of my household, my wife and kids, were sleeping,” Moore recalled. “I wanted to surprise them and didn’t say anything. I had my wife scan the tickets on my Lotto! app and left the winning ticket for her to scan last. When she did, she was so excited she started to freak out.”
Moore plans to take his time and use his prize money for house renovations.
